For years now I have done things out of habit (right or wrong) not giving a second thought to why I was doing things the way I was....After reading Counterintuitive Thinking to Change, I realized I've been stuck in a rut of old behaviors, habits, thought patterns and belief systems that were so embedded I couldn't see why I wasn't receiving the outcomes I desired, be it in my career or personal relationships. This book has opened my eyes to the understanding that I must do things differently or counterintuitively ( meaning the total opposite) of what I'd been doing to achieve the outcomes I truly desire. Through this reading I have learned I must deprogram/reposition myself and get comfortable with doing things differently no matter how uncomfortable in the beginning it may be. I'm realizing I must learn to go against the grain, do what is not the norm... Thinking this way is what positioned the inventors, creators and billionaires of things we now view as life changing. I am ready for change and will be following the steps and advice provided in this short, but thought provoking read....I now have a new perspective and once you've read it - so will you.
